hmmm don't mean to fly off subject, but the 4000 rpm boost limiter rang a
bell. Describe what you mean by boost limiter. I know you have the IHI
turbo, which leads me to think that you are suffering from the same
symptoms I am ('88 TC motor) with the small turbo. Mine just up and dies
around 4000 rpm, even with the Engle 55 cam installed. I have talked to
several other '87 - '88 owners and the turbo seems to keep coming up as
the culprit. I can't tell you how many times I have heard "It just fell on
it's face after 4000 with the IHI, but after I put the T03 on..."
